Brief Answer:
get sonography & sos colonoscopy for diagnosis treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi, though a peculiar problem of pain you seem to have, it would help with further details in history. Like any fever, how are motions and urine, any history of recent injury or history of similar complaints in past.
the common likely diagnosis would be diverticulitis of colon, hernia which is getting obstructed on & off or an infection in the abdominal wall layers.
It would be helpful to have a sonography of the abdomen & pelvis. A colonoscopy may also be required if sonography is normal.
take care.
wish you good health

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
